My mother never made her bed apart from changing the linens or prepping for company.
As with many other things, having observed this as a way of life, it is how I live mine and always have. (I am single and have lived alone most of my life so that bears I think…)
I am not a particularly tidy person generally. I LIKE a tidy home, I just don’t like making the time and gathering the focus and energy to accomplish it myself, I have far more important and/or interesting things to do. If I could stop time while I cleaned my house and it didn’t suck a lot of my energy, I would definitely do it a lot more.
But making my bed, in any serious way, just doesn’t matter to me. As long as my linens are clean and arranged in a manner that feels pleasing when I am wrapped in them/lying on them, that is all I care about.
So tell me about you. Aside from the poll, please share why you do it, if you do. (I know many answers will be simply: “Because I like my house to look neat and tidy and that is part of it.” But if it’s anything else…
